Luciano Rumoured To Replace Marco Carola At Amnesia

Luciano Rumoured To Replace Marco Carola At Amnesia

As the island continues to digest the Marco Carola move from Amnesia to Pacha, the latest hot topic of gossip revolves around who will replace the Italian at Amnesia on Friday nights. Current rumours suggest that last seasons Ushuaia headliner at Dystopia, Luciano, is the favourite to fill the big void left on Amnesias calendar.  It was always going to be a tall order to replace what was the islands #1 party Music On, in footballing terms, it would be akin to the replacement of Alex Ferguson at Manchester United. There are a lot of similarities between Luciano and Ferguson’s replacement David Moyes, both making their names at smaller clubs before finding life in the big leagues not so straightforward with some ill advised moves along the way. Luciano’s well publicised social media bust up with Amnesia back in 2015, was similar to Moyes relegation management of Sunderland the following season.

What lends this rumour some credibility, is the fact that Amnesia have already signed Luciano to headline their Opening Party on May 11 alongside Adam Beyer and The Martinez Brothers. Interestingly, Drumcode Boss Beyer, was touted as a potential replacement for Carola and the talented Swedish Techno artist would have been many peoples favourite pick for the Friday residency at Amnesia. That said, Luciano does have the potential to light up Amnesia and he remains a much loved DJ on the Balearic scene after rediscovering his form at the outdoor venue of Destino in 2015 and clubbers will have fond memories of his Cadenza Vagabundos days at Pacha.

A trend in Ibiza right now, is the move by promoters to party in daytime venues, as holidaymakers continue to show a growing preference for dancing under the open Mediterranean skies. Amnesia’s outdoor sister venue Cova Santa, which has been dogged by licencing problems and club politics in the past, is expected to find it difficult once again this season to host music events there. Luciano would be an ideal fit for Cova Santa, a venue he was to play in 2014 alongside Solomun during the peak of Amnesias infulence before it was shut down by police in controversial circumstances. The main benefactor from that incident was Pacha, who along with Luciano, poached Solomun from under Amnesia’s nose and like a dog with a bone, never let go of him after that.
